  1. Thanks @cazzesman I don’t think they were around when I was looking or didn’t come up in my research. Will keep them in mind when the Arlo’s finish their useful life.
  2. Next you could better integrate your sub. @Snoopy8 is an expert there.
  3. Just saw my own thread. I got Arlo Pro 2. Would I recommend them? No. picture quality is not great. If you don’t plug them in you miss out on the first part of the movement (someone will make it to the porch before a recording kicks in). Worst part is that when you want to see something live it often doesn’t load, or it takes forever. This is because it connects to their servers first, from what I’ve read. If it is recording, it also takes forever to load the live view. It’s design and build seem Apple like and the app is decent, but the usability
  4. Further information: Outstanding streamer and a big step up from the sMS-200. It is Roon ready, does Spotify, airplay, HQ Player, Squeezelite, connect a NAS or HDD. Highly rated by the Stereonet community in terms of value for money. This has a clock connector (cost $300 extra) so you can connect an external clock. Pls note it doesn’t come with a power supply. It is the 12V version. Buyer to cover postage and PayPal fees if required. Photos:
  5. They don’t. @Ian Lyons out of $20k I’d spend maybe $3k of it on the streamer. Lumin, Auralic, Innuous, mytek, naim popular around here.
  6. Item: Netgear N600 and Netcomm N300 Price Range: Free pick up (Melb, Yarraville) Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Would anyone have any use for these?
  7. Further information: Not used anymore. https://support.apple.com/kb/sp628?locale=en_AU Photos:

  9. Yes I wonder how much difference the surface makes. Mine are on concrete with carpet in front.
  10. I was looking at those and wondering what they are. Just looked them up - $1k feet sounds expensive, but the speakers might deserve them eventually.
  11. Some in the classifieds today I think
  12. I agree. I can see why some may prefer the Dukes, which are slightly shorter but look pretty much the same. I think the Dukes would serve a big room and also be at home in a smaller apartment. @HA_Nick It is a beautiful centre especially with the stand, I’m just not into surround sound. The sound for movies that comes out of the two main Astors is plenty good enough for me. I’ve been following @evil c’s new upgrade threads and can concur that you really notice each upgraded component with the speakers. Clive I borrowed some speaker cables to try out and also
  13. Haha. This was pre-outriggers if you mean physical height. 🙃 Elektra Ref HD for power. Then DEQX HDP-5 covers the rest: DAC, Roon streaming, pre, sub integration (Rel T9i’s) and eq. Ether regen ordered. Deciding between this set up and Elektra Pnyx pre, SOTM Ultra for streaming to Qutest DAC. Or, upgrading some of the components. My wife suggested giving you centre speaker because it goes with the black and lives in a cupboard!
  14. Hulgich Astors are the best part of my system.
